Atlanta, GA, March 15, 2009 --( As part of its continued commitment to environmental stewardship, Georgia-Pacific Professional introduces enMotion® High Capacity EPA-Compliant Roll Towels.

The new towels are the latest addition to the enMotion family of touchless dispensing options.

Managers of high-traffic washrooms look for products that are economical and environmentally preferable.
